Visualize live data stream in Houdini

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Years ago, Varomix made a cool tutorial on CMIVFX in which he showed how to access data using Python in Houdini to create a weather widget. One could query Yahoo weather via Python and update the widget.

My question is, is it possible to query data live and make what's displayed in Houdini continuously update, rather than having to manually do it?  Let's stick to the weather widget -- would it be possible to update the data that's displayed in real time? If so, any leads on how?

Thank you for any suggestions!
